Make Music Day is performed by anyone and enjoyed by everyone. The day is filled with as many different events as possible in all sorts of spaces and places.

This is the UK’s contribution to the international summer solstice music celebration which first started in France in 1982 as Fête de la Musique and which now takes place in over 120 countries and 750 cities across the world.

  • Performed by anyone, enjoyed by everyone
  • Open to music makers of all ages, skill levels, and musical styles
  • A DIY celebration of music
  • A chance for people to have a go at singing or trying an instrument for the first time
  • An opportunity to promote your venue, business or musical activity
  • A way to showcase talent and reach new audiences
  • A fantastic way to enjoy the longest day of the year

Find out more information on how to take part as either a musician, event or venue on the Make Music Day website.
